A passer by was walking in the area and heard screams. Tim Stelzel tells WSAW News:

They jumped 10 feet off thinking it was snow, and plunged through and went immediately under the ice and were swept downstream.”

Stelzel claims the dogs’ owners, a couple, “couldn’t be consoled”  Rescue crews were not contacted as the current swept the dogs away under the ice so quickly.

  1. That is so terribly sad! I can’t click like although I like the fact that you passed on the news to keep your furry kids on a leash near the water. I would be devastated.
